Adobe Lightroom 5 Beta

By Norman Chan

But I've just started tested Lightroom 4!

Just over a year after releasing Photoshop CS6 as a beta for public testing, Adobe has released the newest version of Lightroom, also as a free beta to try. Faster performance in the Develop module is the most desired feature, but Adobe is touting three new image-editing tools: advanced healing brush, radial filter for off-center vignettes, and auto-straightening of askew lines. The last sounds the most useful, and is an extension of the amazing Lens Profile Correction tool. I'll be testing out the beta, but still am working through the ropes of Lightroom 4! Once again, happy to take your recommendations for RAW photo editing tools in the comments!
